Perhaps he's not yet a "name brand" producer for Beaujolais, but we like it that way, because it means we can still get our hands on these amazing bottles! Daniel Bouland is a wonderful vigneron who makes splendidly traditional wines from several different terroirs throughout Morgon.
Winemaker: Daniel Bouland
Variety: Gamay (40 year old vines)
Terroir: A parcel in lieu-dit Chatenay that lies about one km to the north of Corcelette, high on the hill of Chiroubles. The soil is friable sandstone and granite.
Vinification:All his grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with full clusters in order to extract all the organoleptic qualities, and bottled unfiltered.
Aging: Tank and 2000-L Rousseau Foudre
Scores: 92 Points, The Wine Advocate "Bouland's 2018 Chiroubles bursts with aromas of ripe blackberries, red plums, violets and cracked black pepper. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with a succulent core of fruit, fine concentration and a long, lip-smacking finish. An especially gourmand rendition of this cuvée, it hails from a steep hillside site and is matured in tank."
